Some musicians know where they’re from and where they’re going, and why. Others, such as Connan Mockasin, can only work from instinct, not only disinterested in the bigger picture as unable to see it. Take Mockasin’s first album, Forever Dolphin Love, which he only wrote and recorded because his mother suggested it. This helps explain the evolution from the labyrinthine, oddball-psych of Forever Dolphin Love to Caramel’s equally inventive and unique brand of mutated, lustrous soul, almost wholly self-recorded over a month in a Tokyo hotel room. After having worked together with such great artists as Charlotte Gainsbourgh, his new album explores different regions of his galaxy, not just soul but a liquefied brew of blues, funk, ambient and folk with pronounced Oriental and Gallic timbres, all laced with an uncanny air of bliss.

Als Pläne, erste Demoentwürfe in London auf Tonträger zu bannen, scheiterte, wollte der Neuseeländer Connan Mockasin die Karriere glatt an den Nagel hängen. Seine Mutter war es, die ihn vom Gegenteil überzeugte. So entstand das experimentelle, letztendlich von Erol Alkan veröffentlichte Debütalbum Forever Dolphin Love. Nach einigen Kollaborationen, u.a. mit Charlotte Gainsbourg, zog er sich für sein Zweitwerk Caramel einen Monat lang in ein Hotelzimmer in Tokio zurück. Das Ergebnis: ein wundervolles Album, welches das psychedelische Grundgerüst um Soul-, Folk- und 80s Funk-Elemente bereichert.
